  Modelling high-speed railway-induced vibrations around tunnels (ground-support)
  Dr C Paraskevopoulou, Dr D Connolly, Dr P Woodward, Dr M Hildyard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
OVERVIEW. This project will be of interest to someone looking for a multidisciplinary project involving fieldwork, laboratory analysis and numerical modelling in the broad areas of tunnelling, geotechnical and geological engineering.

  Instability in peat: developing and undertaking new types of experiments to establish how peat fails in response to different types of external forcing
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round
Peat mass movements are relatively common geomorphological events in UK and Irish uplands. In recent years several significant peat landslides have been caused by engineering work, usually construction of access roads for onshore windfarm projects.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Exploring the influence of trans-crustal magmatic systems on volcano deformation, Geology – PhD (Funded)
  Dr j Hickey, Dr B Williamson
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Dr James Hickey, University of Exeter. Professor Ben Williamson, University of Exeter. Professor Kathy Cashman, University of Bristol.
  Geotechnical Properties of Glacial Tills: Engineering and Environmental Applications
  Dr D Hughes, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"The geotechnical properties of a substrate (e.g. grain-size, permeability, shear strength) determines how it responds to natural and anthropogenic processes.
  Cross-fertilizing materials science with geology to study microscopic mechanisms of the rock cycle
  Dr H Yeddu
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Due to the natural and anthropogenic climate change, rocks can undergo significant transitions, known as the rock cycle.
  Development and Evolution of the West Greenland Passive Continental Margin
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Prof J Underhill, Dr R Jamieson
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Passive continental margins record the rifting, breakup and thermal subsidence of divergent margins and therefore their study is a key components in developing our understanding of large scale tectonic processes.
